Surgical Command Center for the OR

The CONDOR Control System for ORs is a surgical command center that puts medical staff in control of the devices, patient information, lighting and temperature of the operating room. It is designed as the nucleus of Smith & Nephew's Digital ORs.
CONDOR technology makes it possible for a medical team to send commands to medical devices, digital cameras, image management systems and other components using voice commands and a wireless touch panel. It also enables real-time streaming audio and video of the procedure over the Internet. The system is modular and can be configured to work with a hospital's existing information systems, and it can be upgraded as new features and new technology are released.
